- My students only really thought of yoga as a physical practice; and
- They lacked confidence in practicing from home
- I lacked confidence when students with medical challenges or injuries presented in class; and
- My ability to create impact was limited to the number of students I could see each week
- Expand public awareness of yoga beyond the physical practice with a heavy emphasis on yoga's therapeutic benefits; and
- Provide tools and support for yoga teachers and therapists to strengthen connections and better support their students and clients home practice
Yoga for Better Health (previously YogaMate) is a global digital healthcare platform providing tools and services that strengthen connections between yoga therapists & specialist & their clients;
delivering evidence-informed knowledge and protocols that support individuals to feel more empowered in their journey towards better health and well-being.
